Video: Mario Balotelli and Aleksandar Kolarov fight over free-kick duties (Manchester City 3-3 Sunderland)
Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli had to be pushed away from a set-piece set-to with team-mate Aleksandar Kolarov during today’s draw with Sunderland.
A combination of captain Vincent Kompany, Nigel De Jong and Carlos Tevez eventually managed to police Balotelli after a row over who would take a free-kick.
The Italian was determined to get a crack at the set-piece and remonstrated with Kolarov, who had already preparing himself to take the kick. The Serbian picked up the ball and hid it behind his back as Balotelli attempted to get his hands on it!
